    It is horrible. 

     

    Poor accuracy

     

    Poor interface

     

    Total waste of time.  Apple has a very short amount of time to fix this before I simply trade my Iphone in on a Droid. 

     

    PS..Did I mention Maps does not work on an Iphone 4?

    I strongly regrat upgrading to iOS6. The Apple Maps® app alone is the most hyped piece of garbage in the history of software development. Crappy GUI, crappy accuracy, poor maps, poor search, poor everything except marketing.

     

    Thumbs down to Apple®

    No support for transit built in. Now list of directions. A big disappointment. I commute on the buss every day and my phone is all but useless for transit in my city. The two apps that are available for buss routs are also useless. They both do not give accurate times. One, the paid one for $2.99 is going to be returned because the only buss departure time listed in any city I have checked is the first time of the day.

     

    They need to fix this now or give us Google maps as an app.

    I highly agree! Your words must have been a lot kinder than mine as my post was removed!

    Thank you for restating my rant more eloquently!

    Apple, get the message!!! Your map app ***** big time. I won't buy a new iPhone if google maps doesn't become available again. It is not only one step back, it is many steps back. What were you guys thinking when you replaced the google map app? Were you drunk?

    Apple it's time for you guys to recognize this big time fail and fix it by allowing users to download the old Maps application. This new Maps is terrible in every single sense.

     

    In less than a week you guys already managed to get a whole lot of custumers angry and leaving a whole bunch of others questioning if they should update to iOS6. The sane ones at this point probably won't.

     

    If this isn't fixed soon -- and by soon I mean 10 days at best -- I for one will switch over to Android. At least they are not arrogant enough to hype something as being the "best in the world" while delivering something as crappy as this.

     

    For your entertainment I leave you guys with this fantastic blog

    cheers!

    Apple needs to know that we will not stand up for inferiior products because Apple needs to make more money(see New York Time 9/24 business section.)  This is not the credoi of Apple.  .  We are loyal because the stuff is good these Maps should never have been released to us without approval from us. I want my google map back NOW!! Giove me OS5 back!!!  You are acting as though your financial health is more important than the consumer...

    There is actually a quick fix on their end. Just publish the old Maps as temporary fix, or release a iOS 6 patch that replaces this crap for the old one (which is ten thousand times better) until this one starts to work just like Google's one. Something that in my humble opinion won't happen within the next 8 months no matter how many employees they get from Google.

     

    And honestly, Street View is way more usefull thant that crappy 3D fly over to impress blind people. I much rather get a real preview of where I'm going at street level than feel like Superman flying over selected melted cities.

     

    Apple this time really underestimated their custumers ability to think.

    I work at Nokia's Map division. Have any of you tried the Web Map onhttp://m.maps.nokia.com?

    I've seen how good it works on iPads.

     

    @NuGuy, you can also get Transit directions there.

    Anything works better than the Apple® Maps®, even asking strangers around yields more accurate results.

     

    But it's amazing how silent Apple has been about this entire catastrophe. This cleary shows that they (as a company) are not prepared to handle any failures and are not humble enough to admit and provide imediate options to fix it's customers problems showing the least amount of respect.

    O novo aplicativo de mapas da Apple é piada por causa das imagens distorcidas, cidades fora do lugar , caminhos errados e nome de ruas desatualziados !

    Sem falar nas causas inúmeras falhas !

    VOLTA GOOGLE-MAPS -PLEASE

    I agree. I've been an Apple user ever since the Mac Plus, over 30 years of more than satisfactory experience working and using Apple products.  Maps has to be the biggest dissappointment I have ever experienced.  It would be easy to say Steve Jobs is no longer there, hence the degrading of product lines, but that would be to simple an explanation.  Apple is getting to "big" and I think we will start to see the degradation of product offerings just like Microsoft, IBM etc.  To bad - I always believed Apple would be the exception to the rule.
